    More about the Solution
    Tata BlueScope Steel’s affordable housing solution offers all superior benefits of ZINCALUME® steel- durability, design flexibility, termite resistance, corrosion resistance, high strength, dimensional stability, light-weight structure, etc. Being steel, it is earthquake resistant, fire resistant and thermally efficient; also has energy efficiency and environmental friendly credentials. The insulation laid against the underside of roof sheeting dampens the rain induced vibration at point of impact and a substantial noise reduction is achieved. In addition to noise reduction, the insulation also significantly adds to the thermal insulation properties of the roof system.
     
    The Steel Building is easy to build. What more, it helps reduce cost by reducing foundation cost due to lighter superstructure, reduced cranage cost, less labour requirement, fast construction time, etc.
     
    Need for Affordable Housing
    Due to its vast population, India is in need of large number of housing solutions. Urban population is growing day by day; at the same time, slum dwellers and BPL population is expanding at a brisk pace. To counter this, optimum residential buildings have to be built in huge numbers, not only to prevent the expansion of slums and chawls, but also for its eradication. Thus, using light guage structure (LGS) along with world class ZINCALUME® steel and COLORBOND® steel, Tata BlueScope Steel provides steel houses that can be erected in a very short span of time and which have all features equivalent to or better than conventional houses. These LGS houses have been tested and are in use in various countries such as the USA, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, etc. to name a few.
